Event description

Description

For our third event—and second of 2019—digital visual cultural turns to the dynamic practices of digital 3D modelling. Focusing specifically on laser scanning/LiDAR and the subsequent generation of ‘point clouds’ and three dimensional digital ‘mass’, the event will assemble scholars and practitioners across heritage science, archaeology, environmental science, architecture, and fine art disciplines. It will look to articulations of 3D visualisation across disciplines as means to explore how the use of these instruments and softwares of visualisation enable ways of seeing that are at once mediated, experimental, collaborative, and spatially complex.

"Models, Volume, and 3D Visualisation" will kick off with the following keynote talk from Clancy Wilmott:

Point-clouds, pixels and perspective: re-encountering three-dimensional visual technologies between mathematics and culture:

Three-dimensional visual technologies are proliferating in a digital age. From virtual and augmented reality, to 3D scanners and printers, they can be readily found across design, engineering, construction, medicine, architecture, art and beyond, as their volumetric capabilities can be used to map and reproduce complex space.

Drawing on a series of experimental digital 3D projects, this talk considers the interaction between the mathematical view of space including point-clouds, z-axes and LiDAR, and broader cultural and political questions of being in and working through volumetric representations and their relationship to material spaces and cultures. Asking "what are the political and theoretical implications of visualising in three-dimensions?", this discussion turns to two fundamental questions about the way in which we understand digitalities and visualities between science and culture: what are the limits of three dimensional visual technologies, and where might the political possibilities lie in the act of three-dimensional visualisation?
